The economic miracle has been led by construction, which has averaged a colossal growth rate of 47% per year for the last five years. Government development spending has zoomed from Rs 2,000 crore to Rs 16,000 crore per year.
Most impressive has been the rise in road construction, from 384 kilometres in 2004-05 to 2,417 kilometers in 2008-09. Security plus road and telecom expansion have incubated a boom in small business and domestic construction.
However, large-scale industries has not shown growth. Organized sector output actually fell in the Lalu era from Rs 1,150 crore in 1999-00 to Rs 790 crore in 2004-05 at constant prices, and has stagnated under Nitish. Big industry owner are waiting for election in Bihar. What will be the outcome of
